Has anyone made the new Jalie Yoga pant who also made the original Jalie Yoga pant? I am very curious as to how they compare.

I searched and couldn't find this topic covered before, so I apologize if it's here and I just missed it.

I love the old yoga pants (2445) -- great fit, easy to sew. In fact, I made 3 pair in the past week! The new design sounds like it is much more fitted and with a flare to the leg. It is still a low rise pant. Given your slender legs, Sfshaza, the new version might give you a better fit?

Quote:
Yoga pants (A) that are fitted through the hips and thighs and slightly flared from the knee down. The wide faced two-piece waistband allows for fun color blocking. A seam at the back of the leg provides flattering fit and easy adjustment.

Hi, I made the new ones recently. I would say they fit like a legging in the top half, and with a slight flare. They are not a really low rise pant. Sorry I can't compare the two, my other fave Yoga pant style is from Kwik sew, not Jalie. Here's my review: Jalie Workout Pants
On my blog there are more pics, link to the blog is in the review. HTH, Sue

I did a knock off of the Jalie 3022 yoga pants using a Kwik Sew pattern I had. Basically I just did a wide waistband (no colour contrasting) and seaming down the back leg.

I made one in a jegging material (like what you have) and another in a thicker french terry. I constantly get asked where I purchased them because they are not too tight and very flattering. I'll try to post photos later. I find Kwik Sew and Jalie bottoms to be virtually interchangeable for me and the only reason I didn't just sew the Jalie is because I didn't own it.

I have this pattern in my stash. As I remember the reviews mentioned it runs a little small, and I want to make these more for street wear than excercise. Did you need to go up in the sizing?

Hi: I just made the Jalie yoga pant up on Monday. It went together really fast. When you are tracing the pattern, you'll notice there's not a lot of increase from one size to the next. I traced out the size based on my hip measurement, but after reading some reviews, I added 1/4 inch to each vertical seam, which increased the size around the hips and waist by 3 inches, and then 1.5 inches around each leg. Then of course I got afraid that that was too much, so after cutting it out, I used 3/8 of an inch seam on back leg, inner leg and crotch seam, rather than the 1/4 inch that the pattern called for. I tried them on at that point, and decided to do 1/4 seams for the side seam. I was also using a flannel backed lycra, which was a bit thicker than regular lycra. The pants are super comfortable, but I don't think I'll be wearing them out in public without a coat or tunic length top. They are very form fitting. Which is a long way of saying, I would agree with the other recommendations to go up in sizing if you want to use these for street wear.
